Men of the Coast Guard


Published 1938
Topics Newsreel.


Made prior to the outbreak of WWII, "Men of the Coast Guard" presents America's first line of shore defense. Seen in this film are the Coast Guard cutters, life boats, and light ships that patrol America's home waters. The film also shows how recruits are drawn from the merchant marine and trained in the arts of lifesaving, seamanship, and navigation. The full rigged sail ship Joseph Conrad is seen at sea, fulfilling its mission by training cadets about teamwork. The lightship Scotland (LV87/512) is seen on duty off of Sandy Hook, New Jersey, keeping ships from striking a nearby reef and providing a navigation reference in the fog. The Coast Guard maintenance shipyard at Curtis Bay, Maryland is also seen, as well as the Hoffman Island facility.
